Did you know one of our favorite designers that is sold in over 800 stores is from Chicago? In only 5 short years Vfish has grown from a Chicago girl's condo / workroom to one of the most successful Chicago based fashion houses. Shop Vfish at our upcoming Pop-UP Shop or visit their website.
The vfish brand launched in 2008- out of Mandy Moise's guest bedroom in her Chicago Condo. Amazingly, the first collection was picked up and sold by MACY's. Mandy, a former Physical Education teacher was completely surprised that she somehow just happened to have a knack for it. She hit the road with rolling racks and a box of line sheets, personally selling the collection to boutiques all across the country. http://www.vfishdesigns.com/store/pc/custhome.asp
